Criticism of Wiltshire Council's lack of spending in the Marlborough area
Councillor Nick Fogg told the full Town Council meeting on Monday (June 26) that it appears that Wiltshire Council will not be re-surfacing George Lane until 2018-2019 - that is sometime after April next year.
He also commented on the disparity of Wiltshire Council spending in the Marlborough area - comparing it to the £8.4m being spent on Pewsey's 'hub' - or as it is now known its Health and Wellbeing Centre: "And not a halfpenny has been spent by Wiltshire Council on our Youth Centre."
He reckoned Wiltshire Council's spend in Pewsey worked out at about £7,400 per head of the population - which he said was much older than the national average.
Later in the meeting councillors were reminded that Marlborough did set up a Community Operations Board to put together plans for a 'campus', 'hub' or 'health and well being centre', but this was dissolved early on in the process when Wiltshire Council told Marlborough representatives there was no money left in the 'Campus Policy' budget.
